Redfish Kids proudly launches their Summer 2016 Collection, inspired by vibrancy of summer – fresh produce at the farmers market, playing barefoot in the lush green grass, plunging into a brilliant blue lake; nature at its finest.
Every item in the 35 piece collection is designed and made in Vancouver BC, under the watchful eyes of co-owners Kristy Brinkley and Lorraine Kitsos. Using high quality fabrics in an array of vibrant patterns – including soft organic cotton and bamboo – families will love the eclectic and dynamic colours, free-moving styles and durability of wear.
“We wanted the Summer 2016 Collection to exude the warmth, vibrancy and carefree nature that summer brings with it,” says co-owner Kristy Brinkley. “Deep colour saturation, architectural lines with plenty of movement and fun fabrics but with the Redfish guarantee of durability and endurance.”
Popular returning classic silhouettes include the Skater Short, Sleeveless Hoodie and the iconic Redfish Swing Dress. New styles include the Millie Dress for toddlers to tween, and a Baby Kimono in Blue Tofino – the first baby kimono designed with little boys in mind.
